This episode has a CONTENT WARNING for mentions of violence, suicide, homophobia, sexual assault, the brutalization of women, miscarriage, and abortion.

"I can do you tragedy and women without queerness, and I can do you tragedy and queerness without women, and I can do you all three concurrent or consecutive, but I can't do you queerness and women without tragedy. Tragedy is compulsory - they're all tragedy, you see." - A hypothetical writer at CD Projekt Red

In tracing the Witcher series' lineage through the first novel, Devon (@invisifool) and Sam (@SamuelHowitt) discover little of substance to discuss at length! This episode is short and not terribly negative in comparison to the first; the first novel seems to be setting up for the rest of the saga, and as such, is a bit less interesting, but has fewer problems to dive into as well.
